Grameen Family

The Grameen family of organizations has grown beyond Grameen Bank into a multi-faceted group of profitable and non-profit ventures, established by Dr. Muhammad Yunus, the Nobel Peace Prize winning founder of Grameen Bank. Most of these organizations have central offices at the Grameen Bank Complex in Mirpur, Dhaka, Bangladesh. The Grameen Bank started to diversify in the late 1980s when it started attending to unutilized or underutilized fishing ponds, as well as irrigation pumps like deep tubewells. In 1989, these diversified interests started growing into separate organizations, as the fisheries project became Grameen Fisheries Foundation and the irrigation project became Grameen Krishi Foundation.

These ventures include Social Advancement Fund (SAF), Grameen Trust, Grameen Fund, Grameen Communications, Grameen Shakti (Grameen Energy), Grameen Telecom, Grameen Shikkha (Grameen Education), Grameen Mothsho Foundation, Grameen Krishi Foundation, Grameen Baybosa Bikash (Grameen Business Development), Grameenphone, Grameen Software Limited, Grameen CyberNet Limited, Gonoshasthaya Grameen Textile Mills Limited, Grameen Capital Management Limited, Grameen Knitwear Limited, Grameen Mutual Fund One, Grameen Kalyan (Grameen Well-being), Grameen Shamogree (Grameen Products), Grameen Danone Foods (joint venture with Groupe Danone) and Grameen Uddog (Grameen Enterprise, owner of the brand Grameen Check).[2][3



Ibn Sina trust

IBN SINA trust is a non-profit welfare Trust in Bangladesh organization. And a group of dedicated social workers inspired by the values of Islam embarked upon a plan to contribute their services to the distressed humanity by undertaking social welfare programs. Towards that end IBN SINA TRUST has setup Laboratories, Hospital, Diagnostic Center, Consultation Center and Pharmaceutical Industry. The Trust also has the program to conduct other allied services to extend medical facilities to the benefit of suffering people. The profit that accrues is spent on the multiple purposes through social welfare activities of the Trust. IBN SINA TRUST is the fruit of that noble act the pioneers had undertaken. The Ibn Sina Trust was found on the 30th June, 1980 with a view to implement the noblest ideology of Islam which enjoins welfare of the people, services to the humanity and alleviating the sufferings of the distressed people. It is a welfare Trust organization inspired by the former Ambassador of KSA to Bangladesh HE Fuad Abdul Hamid Al Khatib.



Drishtipat (Bengali: দৃষ্টিপাত) is a non-profit, expatriate Bangladeshi organization that works on human rights in Bangladesh.[1] The mission of Drishtipat is to empower and enable the underprivileged and the marginalized segment of the society and individuals living in social and economic poverty so that they can exercise their most basic human rights with dignity, opportunity and hope. Drishtipat is committed to safeguarding individual's basic democratic rights, including freedom of expression. It is opposed to any and all kinds of human rights abuses in Bangladesh.[2] Drishtipat tries to leverage technology to unite expatriate Bangladeshis from all over the world to work on specific issues related to social justice in Bangladesh. It also highlights tales of inspiration from the rural parts of Bangladesh. From its inception in 2001, Drishtipat has worked on various projects related to journalists' rights, minority issues, women's rights, and child abuse. Drishtipat's website also hosts a popular Bangladeshi group blog.


Bangladesh Protibondhi Foundation

Bangladesh Protibondhi Foundation (BPF) was established in 1984 as a non-profit, nongovernment philanthropic organization with the mission of ensuring equal rights of children and persons with disabilities and creating opportunity for equal participation in all spheres of life and make them independent, self reliant and contributing member of the society. The strength of the organization has been in the development of evidence-based strategies for the prevention, early identification and optimum development of CWD‟s, including those are at-risk.


Bangladesh Rural Improvement Fund

(BRIF) is a not-for-profit non-governmental development organization (NGO) founded in 1984 in North-West Bangladesh. We endeavor to raise the socio-economic condition of some of Bangladesh's most disadvantaged and vulnerable communities by mobilizing local resources in an effective and pragmatic way. We involve people and communities in creating and delivering projects to develop their own health, education, rights and livelihoods for a more prosperous and sustainable future. Welcome to the website of ASA, one of the leading Microfinance Institutions (MFIs) in the world.



ASA has been working relentlessly to reduce poverty since its inception in 1978. The formal banking sector in developing countries, like Bangladesh, does not typically provide financial services to the poor. This sector concentrates on large loans to the upper class, thereby completely excluding low income groups. The microfinance movement, however, has shown that there is a thriving market among the poor when financial products cater to their specific needs. The poor are a quite active group in any economy. ASA has shown that their needs can be met while at the same time making the providing institution profitable as well.

Up to October 2011 ASA's cumulative Loan disbursement has been BDT 481,381 million (US$ 6,326 million) while loan outstanding (principal) is BDT 44,972 million (US$ 591 million) among 4.43 million borrowers. At the end of June 2011 ASA's Operational Self Sufficiency (OSS) was 182.48%, Financial Self-sufficiency (FSS) 118.82% and rate of loan recovery 99.83%. ASA continues to perfect the role of financial intermediation by developing a variety of other products that are quite successful at generating necessary funds from local sources. This helps the poor to shield themselves against risks. ASA is now also working in different countries, with Catalyst Microfinance Investors (CMI) through its investment vehicle, ASA International (ASAI), to spread microfinance globally. This coverage is a must to meet the target of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and Microcredit Summit Campaign (MSC). I hope this website will be helpful for you to know about ASA in-depth. I welcome all of you who are interested in ASA.

USAID- United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission to Bangladesh. USAID is the principal U.S. Government agency providing development assistance around the world.

10. Transparency International Bangladesh TIB has since been working as a catalyst of social movement against corruption. It has elaborate research and advocacy programmed for policy change and institutional reform for creating conditions for reducing corruption and promoting good governance in Bangladesh. Since its establishment TIB has undertaken various activities research, information, dissemination, campaign and advocacy to bring about greater awareness amongst the general public of the nature, extent and implications of corruption in Bangladesh across all sectors public, private and non-governmental. One of the early conclusions that TIB has reached is that fighting corruption and promoting transparent, accountable and efficient governance requires active and concerted citizens‟ effort. TIB has, therefore, given priority to mobilizing and drawing support from constituencies of citizens by forming watchdog bodies committees of concerned citizens as a deterrent force against corruption, not only in key sectors of public service. TIB has devoted itself to the task of mobilizing a social movement to curb corruption and to promote good governance in the public, private and non-governmental sectors through greater accountability, transparency and public participation.
